Man this setup looks sweet! You say 22 / 24 setup? What are your specs if you don't mind me asking?

Killer stance! Can you share who you went with for the drop? And also what size tires you're running?

I'd like mine to sit like yours!

Thanks man, it is just a Belltech flip kit in the rear. 3" drop spindles and Djm 3" springs up front, had 2" springs at first but swapped them out for some rake. Belltech Nitro drop shocks all around as well. Tire sizes are 255/60 15 front and 275/60 rear.

My 83 again. The front lowered 6 inches but was dragging the frame n control arms. So had to put my back chopped spring along with 3 inch spindles. It’s at about 5 1/2 inches. Also now has 2 inch shackles in the rear.

Fine, so far. I wish it would have come down another inch, though.

Re: show me your 73-87 lowered/bagged c10's

Great looking trucks in here.

I'm trying to figure out how to fit 325/50/15's flush with the fenders on my '76, as I'm going for a VERY aggressive meaty NASCAR look. I think 15x10 with 4.5-5" backspace will do the trick for the rears, but have no idea what I'll need to do for the fronts. Not trying to put it on the frame rails either- probably a 3/4 or 4/5 drop, depending on how much clearance I need during suspension load.

10" wide and 5" backspace center you between the tubs on the back. Its gonna be hard to fit that big of a tire on the rear with a 5" drop. I run 295/50 and its as big as I feel comfortable going with a ~5" drop in the rear.

8's on the front with a 4" BS are typical on a 15" wheel. You have to grind the control arm and its sit close to the tie-rod end. 10" wide wheel sit just outside the fender and doesn't look great imo.

I see. What about with tubular control arms? Do they offer up any additional clearance?

As far as the outside of the wheels, I've entertained the idea of cutting the fenders/bedsides and adding flares to accommodate the fitment if need be. I know it seems stubborn, but I will not be happy with the build unless I have 325's on all four corners lol. One way or another, I'll make it happen.

If it was mine I would run larger bed tubs. Then get the correct offset wheels. The front, even with tubular arms is still gonna cause problems with the tie rod end on 15's. Most everybody that has ran something that wide runs larger diameter wheels. You could also have someone build/modify a front subframe/arm setup to allow for what you want.

Hmm, well damn. I guess I'll have to run a staggered setup afterall. Sound like a pain in the ass lol.

But hey- I can still get the look I'm after. This is pretty slick looking, though I'd go a touch lower. If anyone has his specs, I'd be interested in knowing them.
